Hunter 21978 Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This fan failed after a few years -- I thought this was a beautiful fan for my son's room. It turned out not enough light for the room, the fans stopped turning. I have another Hunter in my bedroom which has failed that it does not turn anymore. The light does continue to work but its very dim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautful fan! Just a couple of Cons... I just bought a 1902 American Craftsman that was renovated inside and out. The 2nd story gets warm and there was a area in the upstairs landing where i wanted a ceiling fan. After researching several stores and websites i wanted this Hunter 1912 Mission fan. Most of the reviews are accurate. Thia fan is beautiful however has an extremely low light output. Already having that knowledge per the reviews it worked out for me due to existing chandelier in the landing area..Having mounted Harbor Breeze and Hampton Bay fans this Hunter was a little more difficult to install by myself. I hate the candelabra sockets and bulbs, i'm finding it hard to get CFLs or LEDs so its brighter and saves energy. i love the 6379 CFM air flow, you can really feel it moving the air! So all in all it's a aesthetically beautiful fan that produces excellent air however the lighting is dim. I would highly recommend if you have other lighting like i did. If you need this fan for light i would not buy it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive but not perfect This is a very attractive high-quality fan, and we are pleased with our purchase. As the photo shows, the light is a subdued yellow, but we wanted that since we have other lighting for reading. It is quiet. Our only trouble with this product is the fit of the rod and light unit is limited, so you do not have total control of the lamps orientation; i.e. we could not make the longer sides of the lamp parallel with our walls. But is still looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mission 5 Blade 54" Ceiling Fan - Blades and Light Well made Hunter product. Authentic design. To our great surprise HUNTER MISSION ceiling fan was easier to install than some reviews of fan installation had indicated. We are "do it your-self-ers". Fan is quiet as a church mouse. 5 blades even at lowest speed setting moves air nicely. The fan really makes the room because the design is so mission spot on. Excellent telephone customer service from LIGHTING DIRECT.COM representative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, looks great in craftsman home! There is already another review that states the light fixture part of the fan cannot easily be rotated - to align/square it up with the rest of the room. That's true, but other than that, the fan looks great and works like any other fan. Also, the glass is a bit of a barrier to the light bulbs shining through, you may want to surround the fan with a few can lights as well.
